Some mushy friend wants first kiss stories, so I'm going to oblige.
John and I were freshmen in college. We were good friends, and drinking buddies. Of course there was some sort of attraction between us, but as I had a boyfriend, we never pursued it. Well...until one night...
It was actually Halloween. Some how I ended up getting cornered by a former fling, and one of his scuzzy friends, looking for something I wasn't giving. So I jump on my roommate's computer, get on irc and demand John come over and protect me. So he does, and eventually, scuzzy one and two leave.
John and I start drinking. It's 2 am. AMP comes on MTV (Remember when MTV had music videos?) And somehow, we started making out. I don't remember what started it, though I'm positive it was him kissing me first. And it was hot, and awkward, and awesome...and when AMP ended, we turned off the TV and turned on the CD player (Remember CD players?) and Radiohead came on and was telling us to "slow down fool".
It didn't lead to anything that night. I remember him leaving, and thinking "OH sh**! We just ruined our friendship." and getting sad. But luckily, it didn't. We became friends with benefits for awhile, and eventually we realized there was a lot more between us. And here we are, 13 years later, married, with two kids and a house and some apple trees.
